SUNY - Purchase College is located at 735 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, NY 10577, just 20 miles north of Manhattan in Westchester County. Purchase College, part of the State University of New York's (SUNY) network of 64 universities and colleges, was founded in 1967 by Governor Nelson Rockefeller who envisioned a major publicly funded university system. Purchase would uniquely combine, on one campus, conservatory training in the visual and performing arts with liberal arts and sciences programs. The site selected was a 500-acre working farm, originally the property of Judge Thomas Thomas, a Revolutionary War hero. In bringing two styles of education, traditional liberal arts and science programs and conservatory based arts programs into close contact on one campus, Purchase College’s founders hoped to inspire an appreciation for both intellectual and artistic talents in all students.
Purchase College today enjoys a world-class reputation for its arts programs and high rankings for its liberal arts and sciences programs. The college attracts students and faculty from around the world seeking a place where they can develop their talents, expand their minds and prepare for a life of creative independence.

Throughout our history, we’ve shown a willingness to throw open doors, embrace new thinking and commit to brighter ideals.
"On the pages of our strategic plan, we present our Big Ideas not as hopes, but as firm intentions. Why do we believe that SUNY, unique within American higher education, can best achieve these goals? Because of the extraordinary Power of SUNY."
